Pregnant and Overdue? Would you prefer avoiding
a medical Induction if you could? Consider Acupuncture as an option to help
a natural Labour begin. How can Acupuncture for Labour help?
-It may encourage the baby’s head to engage and for them to “drop”
-It may help uterine contractions and assist pre-labour signs
-It can relax you, so you’re calm & focused on you and your baby before the birth Here’s what you need to know about Acupuncture.
It’s Safe: • When performed by a Registered Acupuncturist
• The needles are single use, sterile & disposable. • Your belly isn’t needled. Instead, acupoints
are used in other areas, such as hands and feet. When can you start treatment?
If overdue, you can start immediately. If a Hospital induction is scheduled, try
acupuncture beforehand. Or if hoping to get baby delivered on time,
you can start acupuncture from 37 weeks. How many treatments?
Best practice is to try 2 to 3 treatments. Sometimes one Acupuncture treatment is enough. Its all about Relaxation…of the mind, the
muscles and the cervix. When successful, labour can begin within 24
to 48 hours after acupuncture So to help a natural labour begin, consider
Acupuncture and book your appointment today.
